I am pretty much down for any type of cheesy pasta recipe and especially love this one made with zucchini noodles to reduce calories and carbs and leave extra room for cheese!  Paired with tomatoes, flavorful chicken sausage, and mozzarella cheese, these zucchini noodles are packed with flavor and will satisfy any pasta craving.  I usually opt for pesto chicken sausages in this recipe but any will work and a spicy sausage would be delicious.
